Joint Committee hearing

I wasn't able to be at the State House yesterday for the Joint Committee hearing on the accountability and testing bills, so I spent some time yesterday doing a lot of retweeting (scroll back through the sidebar for those; when I get a chance, I'll post some highlights below). You can also go over to the Massachusetts Alliance for Educational Justice page for some of the pro-moratorium testimony.
I did get a chance to talk to Peter Balonon-Rose from WBUR's Learning Lab about the hearing ahead of time, though.
The bills won't move until fall, so do weigh in with the Joint Committee if this is of interest.
Also, if this is of interest, remember that there are still two hearings left before the Board of Ed on their PARCC/MCAS decision:
  • Monday, June 22, 2015, North Shore Community College - Lynn Campus, Gymnasium, 4:00-7:00 p.m. 
  • Tuesday, July 7, 2015, Springfield Technical Community College, Top of Our City Conference Center, 4:00-7:00 p.m.
